Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router
I think you mean you want to secure your wireless network from unauthorized access.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Ok, I recieved one of these routers a while back to fix and I think that some D-Link's access has been disabled. To reset the router back to default settings, on the back of the D-Link, hold in the small reset button in the hole for about 4 seconds and it should restart. Then, all settings on the thing will be reset back to the defaults set by D-Link!

You need to reconfigure your wireless network.
Better yet create a new wireless account, fillout the Authentication/Security Information.
Establish a wireless connection to that secured network.
